Red Sox Rally Past Rays, Martinez Lifts Boston To Win In 12 Innings
BOSTON (AP) — Randy Arozarena misplayed J.D. Martinez’s fly ball into a two-run double with two outs in the bottom of the 12th inning, lifting the Boston Red Sox over the Tampa Bay Rays 6-5. The Rays were in line for the win before Christian Vázquez belted Diego Castillo’s 0-2 pitch over the Green Monster for a tying homer leading off the ninth. Martinez had an RBI double in the eighth for the Red Sox, who won their second straight after an 0-3 start. Manuel Margot hit a two-run single for the Rays, who wasted a strong effort by starter Tyler Glasnow. Tampa Bay lost the series opener 11-2 on Monday night and has dropped three in a row.
